Obama Campaign's 'Attack Watch' Becomes Victim of Conservative Mockery
Fox News ^ | 9-15-11 | unattributed

Posted on 09/15/2011 5:33:22 PM PDT by dynachrome

Attack Watch, website started by President Obama's campaign organization, was intended to be a repository for supporters to report "attacks" on Obama's record and get the facts. But its rollout has been met with scathing mockery by conservatives, who call it a second-rate version of previous Big Brother sites created by Team Obama.

The onslaught of hilarity was fed first by a brutal parody created by an outfit called Misfit Politics. The mock ad repeats the name "Attack Watch" in a voice mimicking the Budweiser "Whassup" ad of Super Bowl yore and then goes on to offer examples of the types of misinformation readers can report.

Conservative critic Mark Steyn, a native of the U.K., then cheered that he was the only foreigner with a designation on AttackWatch.com.

Glancing as some of the tweets/twits [?], I recognize numerous names.

It is so nice that so many want to help out. :)

Obama is no longer the Untouchable Mulatto.

Once you become the object of ridicule and mockery there is no going back.

My report:

I am schizophrenic, and I think Obama really sucks.

What can I tell myself to convince me he doesn't?

I just watched the mock AttackWatch commercial.

It's hard to make me laugh out loud. It really is.

I laughed out loud three times. WELL DONE.

But seriously, even Alinsky knew that that when becomes the target of ridicule, particularly humorous butt of jokes, it's downhill from there.

Add to the mix, a narcissist personality - and the crumbling escalates.

What with the reported problems of imbibing a bit overboard with the 'lady' of the WH and the populace daring to deride "The WON" - things must be pretty lively in the residential quarters.

Seriously, our best weapon, now that it's got a foot hold, it humorous derision from now to election day.

Not only does it destroy the enemy like nothing else, but a narcissist cannot take it. I imagine he's coming unglued in private by now - but if we keep it up through the next few months, he'll implode in public.

I turned myself in for being a conservative, wanting smaller government, wanting to close the EPA and Dept of Ed and for harboring dark thoughts about nobama.

Gotta go the black helicopters are circling.

I find it odd that #attackwatch is not showing on Twitter “Trends”. The number of incoming #attackwatch tweets is huge. It may be that the folks at Twitter are excluding these from the trend algorithm. I see that “Glen Rice” shows as a trend.

It smacks of this:

Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (Spanish: Comités de Defensa de la Revolución), or CDR, is a network of neighborhood committees across Cuba. The organizations, described as the "eyes and ears of the Revolution", exist to promote social welfare and report on "counter-revolutionary" activity.

and that has no place in America.

“More fun with AttaaaaaackWaaaatch. “

You too? Can’t get that phrase out of my head. I’d advise people that watching that fake attack watch ad could be hazardous to their mental health. The ad repeats that phrase so much that it’ll stick like glue.

It's not just "conservatives" doing the mocking. Independents and democrats with half a brain see how ridiculous this site is too.

It’s interesting that AttackWatch has fallen to ridicule so quickly, and by people from all over the political spectrum.

The population at large is finding it easier to laugh at Obama. That’s good, for us.
